Mountain Information The Three Peaks of Loon Mountain

Discover Loon Mountain! 

Loon Mountain is New England’s most accessible big mountain resort. Located just two hours from Boston and three miles off Interstate 93, Loon offers 61 trails and 2,100 vertical feet of unparalleled skiing and riding.

Although it's close to home, Loon offers the kind of varied terrain and possibilities that you would find at a more remote resort. It’s a mountain that has something for everyone, whether you’re looking to ski the steeps or take your first snowboard lesson.

South Peak

First opened in 2007, South Peak is the place where locals go to find solitude, with wide-open cruisers like Boom Run, 45-degree steeps on Ripsaw, and gorgeous tree skiing in Undercut.

After riding the Lincoln Express Quad to the 2,450-foot summit of South Peak, take a minute to enjoy the views of Mount Moosilauke to the west, Franconia Notch to the north, and Mount Washington to the east. Once you’ve worked up an appetite on the slopes, hit up the Pemigewasset Base Camp for a Boom Run Panini or killer burrito.

To connect with the main mountain, ride the Tote Road Quad from the summit of South Peak to the shoulder of Loon Peak. You can also take a shuttle bus to the main mountain.

The North Peak

At 3,050 feet, North Peak is the resort’s high point. On a powder day you’ll see skiers and riders make a beeline to expert trails like Upper Walking Boss and Upper Flume, which collect some of the best snow on the mountain. Experts will love glades like Walking Boss Woods and Buck Saw, while intermediates will enjoy Sunset and its panoramic views of the surrounding mountains.

Be sure to visit Camp III at the base of North Peak. This log cabin-style lodge serves up hearty venison stew and bratwursts made from alligator, bison, and other exotic game. If you’re here in the springtime, the deck is the perfect place to relax and work on your goggle tan.

Loon Peak

When Loon Mountain opened in December of 1966, Loon Peak was the place to ski. Today, it’s still the nerve center of the resort, with our signature gondola servicing dozens of wide-open cruisers and twisty, old-school New England trails.

Loon Peak is also home to New Hampshire’s only Superpipe and our award-winning terrain parks – including the mile-long Loon Mountain Park. 

Governor's Lodge/West Base Area
